Angling effort  dropped in the confluence this past week as anglers began moving up river to fish around the Heller Bar area in creel section 2. Section 2 also had the best catch rates for Chinook.

The Clearwater (Mouth to Memorial Bridge) saw a jump in documented harvest of Fall Chinook this past week. Catch rates were poor for steelhead and Chinook.  - Jaime Robertson, Clearwater Region Senior Fisheries Technician
